The Smash Direct has just ended, and Nintendo has provided us with a few new downloadable characters to add to the Super Smash Bros. WiiU and 3DS games.
Final Fantasy 7‘s Cloud Strife had been previously announced, but the Direct showcased his moves, and announced his release date. That release date is, of course, today. So you can go download him, the Midgar stage, and the Chocobo hat for Mii Fighters right now.
A surprise addition was Corrin, the protagonist from the upcoming Fire Emblem Fates. Although the game has yet to be released, Corrin will join Robin, Ike, Marth, Roy, and Lucina as the latest Fire Emblem addition.
Last but not least, there was the winner of the Nintendo poll: Bayonetta. She ranked top in the votes worldwide, so the angel-hunting witch will be joining the game in the near future, along with a new stage and music.
To top things off, we’re given a few more Mii Fighter DLC outfits. This includes Genos from Super Mario RPG, Tails and Knuckles from Sonic the Hedgehog, and Gil from Tower of Druaga.
What do you think of these new DLC characters, stages, and options? Let us know in the comments below, and if you take issue with anything, remember: settle it in Smash!
